Floor Jansen, born on February 21, 1981 in Goirle, Netherlands, was the lead singer of the Dutch band After Forever from 1997 until their split in 2009. She is the older sister of fellow singer and Ayreon guest vocalist Irene Jansen, who played "Passion" on The Human Equation.
Floor was sixteen when she joined After Forever in 1997 and the band released its first album, Prison of Desire, three years later.

She took sole charge of After Forever's lyrics and vocal melodies upon the departure of Mark Jansen in 2002. Prior to this, until the release of the Decipher album, the two wrote together.
U.D.O. is a German heavy metal band founded by lead singer Udo Dirkschneider in 1987.
After Udo Dirkschneider left Accept in 1987, a large fan community followed him to U.D.O.
